SURIGAO CITY, Surigao del Norte, Aug. 3 (PIA) -- The Department of Science and Technology – (DOST) Caraga through its Provincial Science and Technology Center – Surigao del Norte (PSTC-SDN) recently confirmed a Memorandum of Agreement with DGT Graphics and Prints in Siargao Island, this province.

The project entitled “Production Capacity Upgrading of DGT Graphics & Prints through Science and Technology Intervention” has an approved project cost amounting to P1.2 million under the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP).

DGT Graphics and Prints started its operation in 2018 as a sole proprietorship  owned by Mrs. Bebiana L. Camingue and managed by her son, Mr. Daniel Adrian L. Camingue. The business offers various printing services to a wide market since it is strategically located in the heart of the tourism area in Siargao Island. 

The firm’s services include vinyl stickers printing, document printing, photo printing, vellum printing, newsletter printing, sublimation printing, lamination, and it also accepts embroidery work orders for uniforms which are outsourced from Surigao City. 

Mr. Camingue recognized the high demand for embroidered prints in the area and took advantage by accepting these orders even if he has to outsource.

He also noted the increasing number of events in the island which required bulk orders of shirts  like fun run and other gatherings.

As a ray of hope,  the firm decided to seek assistance from DOST to avail of the SETUP Innovation Fund (iFund) for the procurement of a sublimation printer and embroidery machine that will address the firm’s technological gaps and increase the productivity and efficiency of its overall operations through equipment upgrading.

During the MOA signing, DOST-Surigao del Norte and DGT Graphics and Prints pledged to extend their full support and commitment for the effective implementation of the aforementioned SETUP project.

We are also inviting interested MSMEs in the province to avail of the SETUP Program. Message our page Department of Science and Technology - Surigao del Norte to know more about the benefits, requirements, and identified priority sectors. (DOST- SDN/PIA-Surigao del Norte)
